London: Kashmiris are undergoing a critical phase as the fascist Indian regime has now started targeting intellectual class of the society in occupied Jammu and Kashmir to ‘kill the Kashmir story’.
Condemning the arrest of pharmacy scholar and Kashmir’s top student leader Abu-al-Ala Fazili and sacking of renowned law Professor Sheikh Showkat Hussain as college principal, Kashmiri diaspora in London called on the voices of conscience to speak on Kashmir and hold India accountable for its crimes against humanity in IIOJK.
“Prof. Hussain and Mr Fazili are people of conscience who put interest of Kashmiris above everything,” said Fahim Kayani, President of Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK.
The Indian military regime in Kashmir, early this month, sacked Prof. Hussain for being voice of conscience in support of UN-granted right to self-determination while the terror-spreading Indian forces raided house of Mr Fazili and arrested him for writing an article on freedom movement in Kashmir which was published in 2011.
“This is alarming that the Indian fascists are targeting cream of the Kashmiri society,” Kayani warned. “The aim is to just spread terror among intellectual class to ensure no sane voice writes or speaks.”
Kayani said this is the same policy that Nazis applied during their time in 1930s. “It is because of the grit, capacity and ability of Mr Fazili that he rose to become a scholar in pharmaceutical studies while Prof. Hussain has been the leader in legal scholarship on Kashmir dispute. Kashmiris are proud of these sons of the soil for their selfless efforts,” said Kayani. He said targeting of Kashmiri scholars is just aimed to “kill the Kashmir story.”
Referring to Indian ban on Kashmiris studying in Pakistan, Kayani termed it “yet another example of terrorism inflicted on people of IIOJK.”
Kayani said Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK will launch a campaign to sensitize the British government and civil society besides reaching out to allies in Europe to impress upon India to force it to release Mr Fazili, re-instate Prof. Hussain and roll back the ban on studies in Pakistan. Web Desk
